Alexei Shishkin – “Bermuda”


New York-based artist Alexei Shishkin dazzles with an immersive sound on new single “Bermuda,” melding nylon guitar, lap steel, and piano flourishes amidst vocals that depict a certain idyllic place, that feels just out of reach. Twangy guitars and pulsing acoustic undercurrents combine with an engaging vocal lead with shades of Stephen Malkmus. A decisive piece of quality songwriting, “Bermuda” has us firmly anticipating Shishkin’s upcoming album, Open Door Policy, out on June 28th.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
